Once a Mormon, John Wallace now understand that salvation is by grace through faith, not by works, so that no one can boast of earning anything. Hear his story on FIRST PERSON on radio, iTunes, Stitcher App, and FirstPersonInterview.com.
John Wallace knows Latter-day Saints. He held temple recommendation and Elders Quorum presidencies for years. He examined the Bible for what he believed and read the Book of Mormon cover-to-cover repeatedly. But a seed of doubt was planted in him during his high school years that eventually grew too large for him to stay a Mormon. He knew he could never be perfect on his own. He could not prove his worthiness to live with his Heavenly Father. If he had to be made perfect, it would have to be by someone else. That someone was Jesus Christ who died on the cross and, as a result, salvation is by grace through faith, not by works.
John is the author of Starting at the Finish Line: The Gospel of Grace for Mormons, and you’ll hear his story this week on FIRST PERSON.
